Ukraine will receive another $1.7 billion in aid from the United States and the World Bank to pay health care workers’ salaries and provide other essential services, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.
The latest round of aid — provided by the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Treasury Department and the World Bank — aims to address the acute budget deficit caused by the ongoing Russian invasion, the AP reported. So far, USAID has provided $4 billion in budgetary support to Ukraine.
